About TEDxUChicago Salons

Having successfully hosted 5 annual conferences, TEDxUChicago is pleased to announce our new initiative to further engage the TEDxUChicago community through salons. TEDx salons serve to expose the community to innovative and interesting ideas and listen to world-class speakers through a more intimate setting. A critical element of a salon is lively discussions; with much smaller audiences than a standard TEDx event, salons bring attendees together in more intimate spaces, allowing the conversation to continue, in person.
